After going through the process of starting a new Hub article, several times I changed the title and subject matter before submitting to HubPages. I have noticed the URL continues to use the original title, i.e., "Dolly Parton Trivia," whereas I actually changed the article about reading a person's body language during a first date.
Can someone tell me if this is hurting my SEO and if so, what can I do to ensure the URL more accurately reflects the subject matter?
Thank you so very, very much in advance!
It definitely is. You should therefore only start a new hub once you are sure what you're going to write about. In this case, I would scrap this hub and begin a new one with the right URL as it's a new hub and the URL has no value yet.

SEO experts....How important is it that URL matches title keywords?I titled a hub, partially typed and saved it. Then I decided a different title would be more appropriate and changed it. I just realized the URL (in the address bar in the search engine) keeps the original title. So my URL does not...
